“Becoming a better diagnostician by understanding decision and probability theory
Dr. Kehn E. Yapp.

Synopsis:
A sophisticated understanding of the testing process is imperative for any clinician involved in diagnostic decision making. Whilst these concepts are established and widely prevalent in the medical community, they are yet to achieve widespread acceptance in dentistry. Grasping and implementing concepts of probability and decision theory – such as Bayes’ theorem and receiver operating characteristic analysis – will only lead to improved decision making, a greater understanding of the type of information to be collected and the kinds of errors that can be made. At another level, this leads to an understanding of the types of questions and their usefulness that should be asked in the diagnostic domain.

Learning objectives:
–  Understand the principles of diagnostic testing from a probabilistic perspective.
–  Describe the performance characteristics and identify the limitations of a diagnostic test.
–  Use concepts of probability to be aware of the types of errors in decision making.

“Cognitive biases in test interpretation – how to recognize them and avoid being fooled
By: Dr. Kehn E. Yapp

Synopsis:
The human element of test interpretation can be subject to occult biases which may have significant effects on diagnostic decisions. These can range from simple language descriptors to test findings being associated with unknown disease progression or morbidity. Whilst the spectrum of available test modalities in endodontics may be limited, the components of many aspects of the interpretive process have not yet been thoroughly studied. Immediate recognition of the sources of error can be difficult when there is a lack of awareness and understanding of the biases in perception and interpretation. When a careful and methodical approach to test interpretation is used, along with an awareness of the likely biases that may affect decision making, clinicians can be more likely to overcome common errors in the diagnostic interpretive process.

Learning objectives:
–  Be aware of cognitive biases in test interpretation.
–  Understand how perception can influence diagnostic decision making.
–  Limit diagnostic error by accounting for the effect of cognitive biases in the interpretive process.
